Yes, the NFL draft is over, but wait — there’s more.

Posted on: May 4th, 2017 by Ron Kaplan

Adam Bisnowaty, an offensive lineman from Pitt, was the only Jewish player selected in the recent NFL draft (sixth round by the NY Giants), but that doesn’t mean he was the only Jew signed.

As stated in a previous entry, the NY Jets snatched up former Washington State University wide receiver Gabe Marks immediately after the last round. Bob Wechsler, author of Day by Day in Jewish Sports History and constant source for the Korner, wrote to let us know that three more MOTs put their name on the dotted line (is it really dotted anymore?). They are:

Anthony Firsker Brandon Kublanow Mitchel Kirsch

If Firsker makes it, he would join QB Ryan Fitzpatrick in what would have to be a relatively small club of Harvard alums on the same team. Only 38 players from that school have played in the NFL.
